I got a whole bunch of skills that I trained at one stage for no apparent reason. Maybe I was on drugs. Like amarr battleship... I don't think I have ever flown an amarrian ship before.

Anyway they're freaking everywhere. Mining skills, refining skills.

I'd like to get rid of them since they clutter up my skill tree and I simply don't use them. I really couldn't give a stuff about losing skillpoints in something I don't use, its just artificially inflating my skillpoint total.

So I would like the option to delete these skills, with the usual illegal skill thing if I try to delete a pre-requsite to something else.

I know how you feel and I know they clutter your EVE board or are a pet peave but...

This could leed to players making the mistake of deleting a useless skill like Minmatar Tech II Autocannons and cruiser skills because they are angry that they are useless. Then CCP changes to TE's and Auto's. I don't think that is the greatest idea because people will end up hurting there selves and when they find a use for it.

Save people from there selves and sit on those skill, you don't have use for them right now and maybe never will. But I don't think that is the right solution.

Wouldn't it make more sense if you could just hide those skills - Make a new tab for them, called "Hidden Skills", where you can stuff all the crap you don't really want in.

Yeah that would work too.

Silly people make me laugh, but at least I don't laugh at people with a mental handicap.
That's waaaay too low for me.

Isn't that a bit too much sense for tidiness? I will just close the skill trees that I don't train in the near future. Is it necessary to browse through your skills that often?
The little gain in convenience compared to the massive implications of deleting potentially very skillpoint-rich skills taking months to learn is a reason for not offering that option I guess.

FWIW, there is one objective reason to remove unused skills: to lower the price of your medical clones.

I don't think so, I like a nice tidy skill tree. I'd like to specialize in certain ships which I have found enjoyable and get rid of the things I don't find enjoyable.

I haven't mined in 5 years. Never flown an Amarrian ship. Don't do refining. I have jump drive and some other cap skills trained to level 5 but I have no intentions of ever using a jump drives or capitals on Infinity (until CCP makes them usable in high sec which will never happen).

Since I have other characters that can do all these things, but trained much more specifically for those purposes I don't want them on my main character. Shes a high sec war deccer and doesn't do anything else.

As for maybe wanting them back one day, if you delete them then thats just bad luck. When you delete a module you don't go petitioning or whining about it. Its your action, so take responsibility for it.

As for cheaper clones, they're so cheap already its a moot point. The costs scale with SP so anyone who's not ebayed, should be able to afford them without even noticing the cost anyway.

my opinion, keep them around. just close the tabs full of things you don't use.
